The Scouts all sit down, either on the floor or on forms, and the leader asks each boy in turn various questions on subjects of general knowledge. A point is given for each correct answer, and the boy who gains the most points naturally wins the game. The questions would vary, of course, according to locality, but here are some which one troop was asked. What does L.R.B.P. stand for? On what railway is Lechmere? How would you get from Boston to New York? What is the test for Toten' Chip? When is Veteran's Day? Why does a Scout wear the Fleur-de-Lys? Where are the Headquarters of the Boy Scouts Association?
